Good vollies. Have to work on that midcourt forehand approach/winner shot though.

Backhand looks like your more solid side. Forehand is like mine, tentative at times.

I would say a 4.0 in the states. IMO based on the current footage.

strong 4.0 - the ground strokes are all arms and have poor depth control.... that vegas 4.5 guy will be all over those short balls.

on the other hand, serve/volleys are looking good.

Volleying is solid, serve is almost excellent, good motion, just lacking a little push to get more MPH's. But overall, you seem pretty consistent, you'd be tough to play for me (i subscribe to the "end the point fast" club.)
 
I try play allcourt tennis when possible. I am not afraid to attack the net, thats true for sure. Still, I seldom serve and volley or chip n charge. If opponent has clear weakness, then i might bounce on that and charge the net.

Thanks for the input.

There werent that many forehands so couple more here.

Eventhough it certainly don't look flashy, it is too cramped for my personal liking, in matchplay it is the shot that i make most of my points.

footwork needs a lot of work. you have basic concept but your feet needs to be moving. once you get the feet moving everything else will fall into place. that's why a lot of people see you arming the ball is a sign of being late and you cant move your body core and do proper coiling and uncoiling to do a powerful groundstroke. the volleys are good because i think you have a weak opponent but even in that spot your are missing some check step. like i previously mentioned once you get the footwork down packed you are pretty much set

Ha! Nice forehands, but I see what you mean about the phone booth!

If you are not looking for "ntrp guesses" what are you looking for ?? Feedback on strokes from the "online coaches" ?

By the way...you would do well at 4.5 :). That's where I would "self rate" in the States if I were you. 4.0 is obviously too low, and 5.0 is probably too high...based on the very limited video. You could get there very easily though...you have a nice foundation to build on.
 
Thanks everybody.

I don't mind people guessing ntrp. Just tried to be clever with the topic.

I dont know exactly what I am looking for. Some feedback I guess, or maybe it is just voyerism? :)

It's interesting to hear opinions from people who don't have obligation to be nice or don't know you personally. Keep them coming!
 
Forgot to explain the phone booth. it's analogy for cramped abbreviated strokes. When you swing racquet in a phone booth you don't have space swing freely so that's the thing about phone booth swings :)

you're 4.5 and a solid one at that. all your strokes are smooth and controlled. you'd have EVERY 4.0 captain in my area asking you to self rate and play for them. :)
